28 September 2017 – Circular walk from Rabejac.

This week we will have a rather easy walk which starts in Rabejac. We start in this little village/hameau where you can park near the tenniscourt. Which you can see at your left hand side when entering the village. The walk is relatively flat except for a slow but steady climb.  

This walk is almost all on good foodpaths and will go from Rabejac via le Mas Delon back to Rabejac again. We will have beautiful views on the lake Salagou. The walk will be around 7 km. The forecast for this Thursday is good. A few clouds but mostly sunny and nice temperatures.

We will meet at Luteva at 9:50h for a 10:00h depart. If driving the D148 from Lodève you see the small sign to Rabejac on your left  just a few hundred meters before the junction to Lac Salagou.

If driving the route from Lodève via Cartels (to Octon) you follow the sign to the right (Rabejac, les Hémies and Mas Delon, D148). After about 100 m you see the small sign to the right to Rabejac.

After the walk Brigitte, who lives in Rabejac, invites us for a drink at her house.

Yuanji Dance Classes for seniors – now on Fridays!

For those walkers who want some more exercise in their week, the 462 Centre in Lodeve proposes a Friday morning class of Yuanji Dance, 10.30 – 11.30 am. This is great fun and helps loosen the joints, reinforce the cardiovascular system, and strengthen memory and balance. It has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine, Qi Going, Tai Chi etc.

Walk from Luteva along the Soulondre and the Belbézé area.

This week we organise a short walk from Luteva along “la Soulondre” and after that we will go a bit uphill to the Belbézé area. At the other side of the road to Olmet (D148E1) we will descend to Lodève again. It is a circular and rather easy walk. Distance about 4 to 5 km. Maximum ascent (and descent) is 100 m. We expect to be back at Luteva around noon or a bit later.

Meet at Luteva at 10 minutes to 10 to start the walk at 10 o’clock.

Walk near Soumont

The weather forecast for Thursday this week is sunny with nice temperatures. So we will go to Soumont to do the walk we cancelled a few weeks ago.

The walk starts in Soumont. As you enter the village there is some parking space on the left side of the street. The walk starts at that point.

We will walk in the direction of the “prieuré Grantmont’, but we will pass the buildings and go south/westwards. The walk continues uphill a bit, some places a bit steep, but not too difficult. We will also descend, but again, not a lot of steep parts.

The last part of the walk is a steady and a bit long climb for about two kilometers. But the climb is not very steep.

The walk is about 7 km. Because of the climbs and descends it will take a bit longer than usual, so bring some snacks and/or food with you. We expect to be back in Lodève between 13:30 and 14:00 hours.

We meet 5 minutes to 10 o’clock at Luteva to organise the “covoiturage”. We will leave at 10 o’clock.
